Lockdown Journal – May 27th – New Life in the New Forest

For a change, we left the beach and drove 20 minutes to take our exercise in the beautiful New Forest.

New life abounds in this national park with foals, calves, goslings, and baby donkeys. This new foal tested his hoofs in the water of the pond and then rushed to his mother for a little nourishment.

My granddaughter is not quite 3 and was mesmerised by activity of the newborn animals.

Located inland from the south coast beaches of Bournemouth, The New Forest was land covered in woodland until greedy kings of the past decided to harvest the wood to build their ships. Some wood remains alongside open land, all protected by law.

Famous for the New Forest Ponies that roam freely to graze on the land, it is a draw for families, campers, walkers, cyclists, tourists and locals who come together to enjoy its beauty.
